Bailey Zimmerman: The New Voice of Country Music

If you are looking for a fresh and exciting sound in the country music scene, look no further than Bailey Zimmerman. The young artist has just released his debut album Religiously. The Album., which has broken records and earned rave reviews from critics and fans alike.

Religiously. The Album. is the biggest streaming debut album of the year across all genres, and the biggest streaming country debut of all time. It also landed in the Top 10 of several charts, including Billboard's Top Country Albums, Billboard 200 and The Billboard Canadian Album Chart.

The album showcases Zimmerman's unique blend of rock and country, with a raspy voice that conveys raw emotion and a sensitive soul that writes honest and heartfelt lyrics. The New York Times praised the album as "comfortably bruising and appealingly bruised", while The Tennessean called Zimmerman "one of mainstream country's most emotionally powerful tracks".

One of the highlights of the album is the hit single "Rock And A Hard Place", which spent six weeks at #1 on the Country Airplay chart, making Zimmerman the first male artist to achieve this feat with only two or fewer promoted chart entries in a lead role. The song is a catchy and relatable anthem about being stuck between a bad relationship and a lonely life.

Zimmerman has also been recognized as one of the rising stars of country music, earning nominations for the 2023 ACM Awards New Male Artist and the CMT Music Awards Male Video of the Year. He also performed "Rock And A Hard Place" live at the ACM Awards, showcasing his charisma and energy on stage. He is also the latest artist selected by Amazon Music for their Breakthrough Artist program, which highlights emerging talents in various genres.

Bailey Zimmerman is definitely an artist to watch, as he brings a new and refreshing voice to country music. His debut album Religiously. The Album. is available now on all streaming platforms, and you can follow him on social media to stay updated on his latest news and tour dates.
